The average time for receiving an article is 3 - 7 days and the average time for receiving a book is 5 - 10 days.
Arrival time depends upon several factors, including how close the supplying library is to the University of Richmond, whether or not the item is immediately available at that library, and transit time. Whenever possible, requests are transmitted electronically, borrowed from the closest holding library, and are sometimes delivered by a courier service in the immediate Richmond area. Photocopies may be faxed or sent via the Internet.
Because ILL cannot predict the location or availability of an item nor can we guarantee that material will be received within a specific time period. Borrowers are encouraged to submit ILL requests well in advance of deadlines.
